‘Tis the season for all things haunted, so why not evoke some ghostly spirits with your Cabernet? Delightfully secluded at the end of a long, winding drive off the Silverado Trail, Regusci
is one of Napa Valley's “ghost wineries,” a term given to a handful of resurrected facilities built between 1860 and 1900, before disease, Prohibition and the Great Depression decimated the valley's early wine-grape industry. The buttery-stone facade of the cellar dates to 1878, but the dog-friendly tasting room is elegantly modern. You and Fido are welcome to belly up to the bar or picnic on the shaded grounds, where you're likely to be greeted by a Welsh Corgi named Trixie or a half-dozen other winery dogs. Just please, heed the sign and don't feed them.
Want more? Pay a visit to Flora Springs Vineyard, which—just in time for Halloween—has released a 2009 Ghost Winery Malbec. Appropriately enough, it comes in a box shaped like a coffin. And yes, dogs are welcome in the tasting room. Just watch out for bats.
